Star Valley Evens Record at 3-3 with a Victory Over Powell
In the rugged 3A West, it seems that anybody can beat anybody on any given Friday. Star Valley held serve at home on Friday as they posted a 29-13 win over Powell in Afton to get to 3-3 overall and 1-1 in conference play.
In the opening quarter, Star Valley got on the board thanks to a 23 yard TD pass from Taft McClure to Winston Green to give the Braves a 7-0 lead. Star Valley followed that up with a 2nd quarter safety and a 79-yard touchdown catch by Green to up the lead to 16-0. Powell returned the favor as Isaac Whitlock returned a kickoff nearly the length of the field (99 yards) for a score to cut the lead to 16-7.
Zac Patterson of Star Valley caught a 3rd quarter TD pass from 3 yards out to make it 23-7. Powell responded in the 4th quarter on a 5 yard run to the end zone from Reed Smith so the Panthers were within reach at 23-13. Star Valley put the game out of reach as Green tallied his 3rd touchdown of the game, this time on a 21 yard run as the Braves win this one 29-13.
Star Valley has a huge game this week at Cody. Powell is 4-2 overall and 0-2 in the 3A West and they'll host Green River this week.
